Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Oatmeal Stout is a classic British-style stout brewed with flaked oatmeal and roasted barley. Freshly-roasted coffee beans, cocoa and touches of raisin and dried fruit dominate the aroma of this super dark ale. The richness of the grain blend is balanced by the nutty character of the roasted malt, the creaminess from the oatmeal flakes and a dose of hops.

Before the 19th century, all barley was malted over wood-fired kilns and the resulting dark roasted malt defined the browns, porters, and stouts of England. Near the end of the 19th century, brewers had introduced oats for their purported restorative and nourishing characteristics, producing beers such as oatmeal stout and milk stout. By the 1950’s, Oatmeal Stout had nearly trickled out of existence. Following the beer’s literary rebirth in the articles of English beer writer Michael Jackson in the 1970’s, British and American craft brewers are once again promoting the style.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Very dark brown almost black with a finger and a half worth of tan head. Light amount of runny lace.

Smell- Dark roasted malt and coffee with a hint of nuttiness.

Taste- Dark roasted malt, coffee, char, and a hint of chocolate.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied and smooth. Above average carbonation but just a tad watery.

Overall- Not my favorite stout but easy to drink. I wouldn't turn one down in the future.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

I poured a 12 ounce bottle into an ale glass.

Appearance: Completely opaque, black color with a creamy-tan thick head that lasts for 3-4 minutes.

Aroma: Overwhelming smell of bacon and brined meats with a subtler aroma of smokiness and a hint of coffee and anise

Flavor: Rich malt and cured meat flavors that remind me of chewing a piece of prosciutto. Coffee and a refreshing, cleansing hoppiness lingers for 45-60 seconds.

Mouthfeel: Definitely full-bodied but lighter than expected based on the appearance

Overall: A very enjoyable stout that is typical of its style. I have a fondness for the Schlafly brand in general, but will want to redrink this beer the next time I make it to St. Louis.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A: Pours dark with a good amount of head that leaves plenty of lacing.

S: Not a ton going on here, though the last stout I've had was a FBS, so yeah.

T: Semi-sweet chocolate, oats and finishes with some hop bitterness.

M: Medium-bodied, I'd have no problem knocking back a few of these in a night.

O: I probably first had this stout 10 years ago. Brings back memories. Solid stout and tastes as good as ever.
